I'm interested in buying a television (my first one in 25 years), and it seems so overwhelming (especially after doing a lot of reading online). Once I choose a television, I'm wondering if I'd be better off buying a soundbar (if needed) or using an older stereo shelf\/mini system (Sony MHC-EC55) that I already own (if that's even possible). I live in a small one-bedroom apartment and I'm very frugal, but am willing to pay more than the bare minimum in exchange for added simplicity and\/or tv sound quality. I would greatly appreciate any advice regarding how to proceed...what to look for in a television and\/or if I'll need something to improve its sound and\/or if that something should be a soundbar (or if I'm better off using my old stereo). Thank you!
